One thing I guess it depends on is the C++ "dialect" you're using. If
you're using C++ as the proverbial "a better C," then libpqxx is not
for you. But if the existing code deals with and uses exceptions and
such, libpqxx should make your life a lot easier. No more checking
for errors in return values, no more manual conversion of fields to
integers, no more GetValue().
Perhaps (when I've got time--the weather's too good now!) I should
put together some examples of converting code from libpq++ to libpqxx.

They're in the archive. I'll put them up separately as well.
